“Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.” – Eric Hoffer
The Feminist Cause began as a fight against what they believed was systemic oppression. After the Roe v. Wade decision, the widespread legality of abortion upon demand made the profit motive increasingly paramount as Planned Parenthood cornered the market on aborting fetuses. As the movement increasingly gained power and effected the regulatory capture of the authorities that were supposed to make sure Women’s Health Centers were at least somewhat healthy, the chop-shop clinics of sadistic killers like Kermit Gosnell proliferated across the land.
We all know, in the back of our minds, that this travesty occurs hundreds of thousands of times every year in America. We’ve seen the dry, emotionless statistics, heard the screech of the harpy when we fight it, and given in to a certain cynical realism. As long as it’s happening to the type of baby that ends up in Kermit Gosnell’s sort of a clinic the republic will survive even if the poor, defenseless fetuses don’t.
That veil of truculent, sullen dispirited surrender got ripped from the eyes of those who could see. A reporter went after Senator and aspiring GOP Presidential Candidate Rand Paul on comments he had made that suggested he favored restrictions on late term abortions. He responded with condign redirection.
The ball was now in the court of Democratic Leader Congresswoman Deborah Wasserman-Schultz. She gave an honest expression of what the Progressive Left truly feels.
“Here’s an answer,” she said in an emailed statement. “I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story. Now your turn, [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’P000603′ ].”
[mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’P000603′ ] gave the following response.
“Sounds like her answer is yes, that she’s okay with killing a seven-pound baby,” he said.
According to YouGov.com, this is a fairly vanilla and plausible position for a Democrat to take. They asked people when they believed life began and offered them three options: at conception, at fetal viability, and at birth. The results by partisan affiliation follow below.
With Democrats, the breakdown is (39/20/31). I guess what you should take from this is that life at conception Democrats have an 8-point lead over those who feel it begins at birth. Independents have a breakdown of (52/22/13), and Republicans have the strongest numbers regarding life at conception (71/17/7).
Thus, you could reasonably surmise that 31% of Democrats, 13% of Independents and 7% of Republicans could justify snuffing a 7Lb baby like an unwanted puppy under virtually any circumstance. You could probably jawbone at least 51% of Democrats, 35% of Independents and 24% of Republicans into doing it if you were overbearing and obnoxious enough. Only 39% of Democrats, 52% of Independents and 71% of Republicans would express a significant and principled objection regarding a typical day in the professional life of Kermit Gosnell. Out of that, perhaps one individual in twenty has the actual courage to stand up and rage against the Abortion-Industrial Complex that has made a mockery out of most debates over so-called women’s issues.
So if Rand Paul comes off as a wee bit petulant or ungentlemanly during these discussions excuse me while I go find an air sick bag. He didn’t even originally bring up the topic of abortion in his New Hampshire meeting with the presstitutes. They asked. He answered. The scab got picked and the lid got ripped off of Hell. No matter how hard Planned Parenthood, Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz, the academic lefty lickspittles who tried to sell abortion as a form of Pre-Crime insurance against the dirty unwashed of America’s lower classes, and no matter how hard “ethicists” from the great and renowned Oxford University tell us it’s perfectly ok to execute inconvenient or economically marginal newborns due to their close resemblance to fetuses; we all know it’s murder.
This is why Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz talks about privacy and doctor-patient confidentiality. Opening this entire process to the sort of sunshine we get from Project Veritas would not be much different than what we all got to be sickened by when we opened Kermit Gosnell’s refrigerators at his abortion clinic. I’m certain the odor that came out of those charnel iceboxes was not the smell of feminine empowerment in the morning.
